Today I'm reviewing THE IRISH HEALER by Nancy Herriman, published by Worthy Publishing. This is a historical romance set in London. Irish healer Rachel Dunne sails for London intending to leave her life as a healer–and the scandal that begins when she is unfairly accused of letting a child die in her care. She goes to work for an English physician, James Edmunds,  who is haunted by secrets of h...

It's always a special treat for me when Mary Ellis has a new book out. She has such a talent for characterization--are characters are always fully developed, appealing, and sympathetic.

The Polygamist's Daughter by Anna LeBaron
"“But I need to do God’s work, and so do you.”
So. Do. You. These prophetic words from young Anna LeBaron’s mother to her would manifest decades later in the writing of this heart-kneading memoir. LeBaron’s nomadic childhood in a radical polygamist..." Read more of this review »

“He’d lived for those letters, he remembered. He’d imagined meeting and marrying Miss Sarah Matthews, and bringing his bride up to meet his friend at Beaumont Hall. But the visit was not to be—Jeff died, despite Nolan’s care and desperate prayers, and once he was gone, there was no real reason for Nolan to remain at Beaumont Hall. The “Spinsters’ Club” had invited him and a couple other candidates to come for Founders’ Day. He’d ridden southward, knowing Sarah Matthews would be as beautiful in person as she was interesting in her letters, and hoping she would not hate him because he was a Yankee.”
Laurie Kingery, The Doctor Takes a Wife

“How do you feel, sw—Sarah?” He’d been about to call her sweetheart. The thought sent hot color racing up into her cheeks and her gaze dropped shyly into her lap against the earnest intensity of his blue gaze. “Like a butterfly left out in the desert after it’s been trampled by a maddened bull,” she confessed, smiling and raising her eyes to him again. “I hurt everywhere, Nolan, but not as bad as I did yesterday. And I can’t seem to get enough to drink,” she added, glancing longingly at the water pitcher on her bedside stand. He took the hint, and poured her a glass of water, sitting down in the nearby chair as if his knees were suddenly wobbly. “Thank God,” he breathed, his eyes suspiciously wet.”
Laurie Kingery, The Doctor Takes a Wife

“My dance, I believe?” “Are you sure you’ve danced with every other female in town, from the oldest to the youngest?” Sarah asked archly. He raised a brow, and in that moment she knew she’d made a mistake. “Ah, so you were watching,” he said, grinning. “I most certainly was not,” Sarah insisted. “I never sat down myself, except when the musicians took a break. I only just realized that you hadn’t made good your threat to claim a dance.” “Threat?” he echoed. “I believe I only requested a dance, as proof of your goodwill. And I was waiting for a waltz, Miss Matthews.” “Oh? Why?” she asked. Was this girl asking the daring questions really herself? Again, the raised brow. “If you have to ask that, Miss Sarah Matthews, then it’s no wonder the South lost the war.”

Donna Laurie:
Thank you for friending me on Goodreads.
Have a good week.

Laurie Kingery I was first published in 1987 and wrote 14 historical romances as Laurie Grant with Leisure, Warner, and Harlequin Historicals. Then I changed to Christian fiction, which is a better fit or me, I think, and have been writing for Love Inspired Historicals ever since. Thanks for your interest!
Blessings, Laurie Kingery


Christine Hatfield how long have you been writing books?
